    Human impact threatens millions of species with extinction – with the dramatic loss of biodiversity endangering the existence of human kind itself. However, there is one obscure profession that is at the forefront of reminding us of what we are about to lose forever: Maurizio, Robert and Christophe are three world-class taxidermists working at the natural history museums of Berlin, Rome and Brussels. Although they have never met, they share the conviction that preserved animals can help to overcome the gap between society and nature. As we watch them get ready for the European Taxidermy Championships, another voice rises from the dead to give us one last warning
